The Adderstone, Dalby Forest

This year’s White Rose will take place in Dalby Forest with new maps, including areas not used for orienteering for some years. An excellent camping and event field has been offered by Forest Enterprise with splendid areas of hard standing for parking and camper vans and favourable rates have been negotiated with Forest Enterprise for the use of the Forest Drive over the weekend.

The familiar programme of events will be offered as in previous years. In addition, the event centre will be very close to all the other attractions of the forest and surrounding area including the attractive towns of Pickering with the North York Moors Railway, Malton and Kirkbymoorside and above all the incomparable Moors themselves!

Ever thought of joining the White Rose Team of volunteers?

  • White Rose 2016 has a great team of experienced planners and team leaders from within Eborienteers.  However we need about 50 – 55 volunteers to run the weekend – not only just helping at the 5 main races, but also looking after the campsite, car park, utilities and many other jobs.
  • DID YOU KNOW that last year nearly a third of the 50-odd volunteer helpers at White Rose Weekend were not Eborienteers members, but were from various other orienteering clubs around the country.
  • Please e-mail contact@eborienteers.org.uk if you would like more information about volunteering/helping at White Rose Weekend.  No experience needed and volunteering won’t affect your competitive status unless (of course) you are putting out controls.
  • And there are big discounts on entry fees and free camping for all helpers


Details of the Campsite and other alternatives can be found here.
